Chit-Chat / Re: WWV potentially going off the air due to budget cuts

no one should need a rotary phone anymore.
Prolly not.
Not being able to read a "normal" clock is utterly ridiculous. Hopefully by the time the "child" gets to his or her 20's they'll have taught themselves. :roll: I don't see analog clocks going anywhere, anytime soon, but I may be completely wrong. Could you imagine Bobby or Suzy going to a job interview and the potential employer ask Bobby or Suzy to "tell the time" and gets nothing but :???: ....  #-o

The Wunderstation APP on Ipad is really great. It was updated a few days ago

Thanks,

Chuck

That is great to hear. I wonder when the promised and many years delayed Android version will come out. SMH  :evil:

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: Acurite closes community forum?

George....Since you seem to be well connected with Acurite, maybe you can suggest that they make to old forum posts available.  They can lock the forum, but there is a lot of good information our there.....RDK

I'll give it a try, but it's probably a long-shot.  The forum was hosted on a third-party platform. 

I imagine Acurite has a copy of all the content, but probably no way to easily bring it up on their own website.

Thanks, George. A long shot is better than no shot.

I availed myself of the solutions in the forum, several times, which left me time to be my grumpy old man self.  ;)

Analog clocks are still in use.

Weather Website PHP/AJAX scripting / Re: Atom Warnings not working
« Last post by ingogliar on Today at 05:15:41 PM »
Jasiu,

Thank you for your patience - I had to go to work and this postponed my trying your suggestions.

I am attaching:

1) contents of cache located on my webserver at web/cache (list of files) - web directory is the location of my index file (as you indicated)

2) I logged into my webserver using bitvise SSH and tried the suggested commands (with the results indicated in attached screenshot). As far as I can tell, my NAS Web Station is running bash version 4.3.48. Are the commands you suggested able to run on my version of Linux?

Again - thanks for the help.

The only good thing about that is that kids can't tell time on an analog clock.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry at that. That's even sorrier than being clueless on how to use a rotary phone.

AcuRite Weather Stations / Re: New Acurite Lightning Detector
« Last post by wcndave on Today at 04:31:16 PM »
Right, I saw a post from you on the google group, which I think answers my own questions.

I want:

Code: [Select]
lightning_strikes_total  = strikes_total.002D.AcuriteLightningPacket  ## lightning detectorwhich assigns the running total to lightning_strikes_total

Code: [Select]
[[deltas]]
      lightning_strikes = lightning_strikes_total

which says that the variable lightning_strikes is the delta value of lightning_strikes_total

Code: [Select]
[Accumulator]
   [[lightning_strikes]]
      extractor = sum

which says to sum all those deltas

so my example now would be

10 -> stored in db
10 delta = 0
14 delta = 4
17 delta = 3 -> stored in db as sum of deltas 7

I think that's it now, will check during the next week or so I guess.

The Wunderstation APP on Ipad is really great. It was updated a few days ago, but the Indoor Temperature is still not working - although the associated graph does show the data. This stopped displaying several months ago. Please fix.

In addition, I would like to see the PurpleAir Air Quality data displayed with the associated PWS Station. I have the PupleAir device and it displays on WU, but it does not show up under the Air Quality section of my specific PWS. I notice that WU has been promoting the PurpleAir, but it there should be a way to link it to the PWS Station owner.

Thanks,

Chuck

What Weather Station Should I Buy? / Re: Past WX stations owned?
« Last post by stormtracker on Today at 03:15:56 PM »
My first weather station was a childrens kit, with a cardboard display with four neon bulbs for direction and one, which blipped with every revolution of the anemometer.  The wind speed was calculated by the number of "clicks" in a minute.  Went from there to a Taylor Windscope but had constant problems with it so upgraded to a Maximum wind cube.  Then, in the mid 70's, I was invited over to Texas Electronics in Dallas for a tour and they gave me surplus parts to build my own wind station.  It was awesome.  Since then, I have stuck with Maximum and Davis.  I currently have a Maximum set for wired wind performance and a Davis VUE for all other, wireless parameters and a COCORAHS rain gauge for back up.
